I stated last week before the game, after the USA Today article, that I thought this was a potential concern. And what I saw on the field didn't exactly alleviate those concerns. And Jacobs' actions after the game didn't exactly alleviate those concerns. Losing is one thing, what happened today is another. Our NFCCG loss, and our Ravens, Cardinals, Cowboys, and Vikings losses under Harbaugh didn't look like this. This one was different. And I think it's more than just a coincidence that we have a disgruntled player who likely at this point has been driven to the point of not giving a f**k about how we do anymore, who also used to play for the opponent that we were playing, and who also demonstrated excessive buddy-buddy behavior with his former mates...it smells fishier than sushi. Can you elaborate as to why you think there is NO chance that this was the case? You're just gonna keep telling yourself that the one game our coaching staff looked predictable, dull, and Singletary/Raye-like just HAPPENED to be the week with Jacobs sounding off in the week we were playing his old team? I'm not buying it. Too many coincidences for my liking. If it looks like a duck and walks like a duck, it's probably a duck.
Just how you're gonna keep telling yourself that since Jacobs is frustrated that he hasnt played yet and has friends on the team that he told them all the plays we were gonna call. He said he was frustrated, not that he hates the team and doesnt want to be here and will do anything to make sure they lose.
Everything about this game was executed poorly. The blocking up front was terrible. Did you see Anthony Davis trying to block JPP? Iupati had a big penalty that wiped out a nice Gore run. Staley got concussed. Goodwinn was penalized. Brown was offsides on a field goal giving the Giants a first down, and I believe he had a PI call? Akers missed a couple field goals which could have helped with momentum and confidence. The only players that played like they wanted to win were Moss and Manningham. Those are things that you cant really gameplan for.
Plus I dont think having another teams gameplan would help your offense a whole lot. We got no sacks, no turnovers and basically let their offense do what they wanted.
